Now that Jasper is used to having me around fairly often, he gets more destructive when he's left alone. He stays in the kitchen while we're out, and has been chowing down on anything he can get his paws on. A few weeks ago, he got Jack's teething keys off the kitchen counter and chewed them up. Then he managed to eat a bag of Jack's formula (and was surprisingly well afterwards). Today, I came home to find an empty breadbag in Jasper's bed. He'd eaten an entire loaf of extra fibrous wholegrain bread. I dread to think of the consequences that may occur later this evening.
We've got to look into ways to get this behaviour to stop, but it's so hard to be angry with him when he looks at us like this for the rest of the day:
We need a supernanny for dogs.
